We’re bringing public school and online learning together in a way that works for students and their families. Authorized by the Ohio Council of Community Schools and available to K–12 grade students all over the state, Ohio Connections Academy is an online public charter school designed by experts in online education. It’s a great way to learn from home, or anywhere else, without paying tuition.
Your child is unique. They have their own passions, their own dreams, their own way of learning. And their individual needs may be best met through an online school vs. a traditional school setting. At Ohio Connections Academy, we give all kinds of students the chance to follow their hearts and prepare for the future they desire. Perhaps your child is a musical virtuoso. Or maybe they’re a sensitive thinker who prefers to work alone. A budding athlete? An entrepreneur? Whoever your child is—whoever they want to become—we can open new possibilities for them.
Ohio Connections Academy is a great fit for students who want to:
With online schooling, your child will have new opportunities to learn and grow. The better prepared your family is for online learning, the more your child can get out of it.
How Does Virtual School Work?
At Connections Academy, we take a holistic approach to learning that ensures students are supported every step of the way. Our impactful and personal learning experience nurtures and guides each student to become well-rounded individuals with the skills and confidence they need to thrive. Learn more about how online school works.
As an online student, your child will spend part of their day logged into their online classroom. Younger children spend less time on a screen than older students, but all students engage with dynamic lessons and are expected to complete assignments, quizzes, tests and class projects by certain deadlines. If your child needs help at any point along the way, they can quickly connect with their teachers or turn to you for guidance and support.
Parents and caregivers at Ohio Connections Academy are their child’s Learning Coach. Being a Learning Coach gives you the chance to be a part of your child’s learning, celebrating their victories and lending a hand when they need extra help. The younger your child, the more you’ll want to be by their side. But no matter your child’s age, their teachers will be readily available to work and collaborate with you. And you’ll have plenty of resources to make sure you—and your child—stay on track for success.
